Somehow we always seem to remember what’s wrong with us and are often at a loss for remember what’s right. And the truth is that every one of us has far more right than wrong.
When you identify your strengths, you build confidence. So the simple strategy is this:
- Admit your strengths – write down at least three
- Write two “stories” about a time when you used each strength
- Ask two friends to tell you a positive story about a time you demonstrated each strength
- Keep those stories in a book so you can reference them when needed (job interview, networking party, etc.)
